WASHINGTON– A blockbuster report obtained by Fox News shows illegal border crossings have totaled well over one million since Joe Biden took office eight months ago,
The report, which came from a source with the DHS, shows Border Patrol agents recorded more than 200, 000 illegal border crossings in July alone and another 208,887 encounters in August.
The numbers represent a 317% increase over August 2020 which saw 50,014 encounters — and a 233% increase over August 2019, where there were 62,707 at the peak of that year’s border crisis.
According to the DHS source, August’s total of 208,887 represents just a fraction of the true number of illegal aliens that are able to slip through undetected.
Biden has faced fierce criticism for its handling of the border crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border, which Republican blame on his administration’s rollback of Trump-era policies like border wall construction and the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP).
In August, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said the administration will continue to move forward with its border strategy, which he said involves rebuilding “safe, legal and orderly pathways for migrants,” improving processing, and going after smugglers.
“We have a plan, we are executing our plan and that takes time,” said Mayorkas.
Privately, however, Mayorkas has admitted that the crisis at the border is “unsustainable.”
In audio leaked to Fox News, Moyorkas, who did not realize he was being recorded, said “A couple of days ago I was down in Mexico, and I said look, you know, if, if our borders are the first line of defense, we’re going to lose and this is unsustainable,” Mayorkas said. “We can’t continue like this, our people in the field can’t continue and our system isn’t built for it.”
MISSION, TX (The Western Journal)– A new video revealed illegal immigrants moving easily across the southern border from Mexico into the U.S. on Monday morning as Border Patrol agents are reportedly being pulled from the field to assist with paperwork.
“This morning, a group of illegal immigrant runners passed by us and disappeared into a nearby cotton field here in Mission, TX,” Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin reported from the Rio Grande Valley.
“There were no Border Patrol agents around. Many agents in the RGV have been pulled from field patrol to help w/ processing & paperwork,” he added.
Melugin also retweeted his interview on Monday on “Mornings with Maria” on Fox Business on the issue.
“Border Patrol agents at the Del Rio Sector are overwhelmed by high numbers of migrants. The 245 miles is only patrolled by 12 agents.@BillFOXLA is covering the story in Mission, Texas with wild video from just this morning,” the program tweeted.
Melugin commented, “We had a group of runners come zipping across right in front of us. It was a group of maybe six to 10 illegal immigrants who very clearly did not want to be caught by law enforcement.”
He added, “They ran right in front of us. They took off into a cotton field right by us and disappeared. There were no Border Patrol agents anywhere near us.”
The Washington Post reported earlier this month, “The number of migrants detained along the Mexico border crossed a new threshold last month, exceeding 200,000 for the first time in 21 years, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection enforcement data released Thursday.”
The Post added, “Among the 212,672 migrants taken into U.S. custody in July were 82,966 family members and 18,962 unaccompanied teenagers and children — an all-time high.”
Three weeks ago, Border Patrol apprehended a record 834 unaccompanied children along the nation’s southern border in a single day.
“Biden’s open border policy is a disaster,” Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton tweeted at the time.
In addition to the 834 unaccompanied migrant children, 2,784 children were in the custody of Customs and Border Protection and 591 transferred out of CBP custody.
A total of 14,523 migrant children were in the care of the Department of Health and Human Services, while 612 children were discharged from HHS care.
The updated statistics also noted the 30-day average of unaccompanied children apprehended and placed into CBP custody had reached 512 children per day.
WASHINGTON–Joe Biden, through executive order, is attempting to increase the influx of illegal immigrants into the United States between now and 2024 in order to impact the outcome of the 2022 midterms and next presidential election.
In an executive order written Tuesday, Biden ordered multiple federal agencies to boost the number of illegal immigrants obtaining citizenship status in order to make them eligible to vote.
The order seeks to “eliminate barriers in and otherwise improve the existing naturalization process … [and] substantially reduce current naturalization processing times … [and] make the naturalization process more accessible to all eligible individuals, including through a potential reduction of the naturalization fee and restoration of the fee waiver process.”
Further, the order creates the “Interagency Working Group on Promoting Naturalization” which includes the Department of Homeland Security, the Labor Department, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of House and Urban Development, the Department of Education, the Social Security Administration, and other federal agencies to “develop a national strategy to promote naturalization.”
Per the executive order, the group must submit a report to Biden within 90 days that outlines a strategy to “promote naturalization” that could include a “public awareness campaign.”
Analysis conducted by the Center for Immigration Studies reveals the extent to which state electorates have been altered by mass immigration since the year 2000. The Pew Research Center has noted, as well as a number of establishment media outlets, that these trends are aiding Democrats in their electoral prospects.
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Tuesday shot down plans by California leaders to use mail ballots for the November election, warning that such an option would lead to a “rigged election.”
“There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent. Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed,” the president wrote in a two part tweet. “The Governor of California is sending Ballots to millions of people, anyone living in the state, no matter who they are or how they got there, will get one.”
The president was joined in outrage over the plans by Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel, who also criticized the California governor Gavin Newsom’s plan, calling the effort an “absolute, brazen power grab.”
“What he is talking about is just sending ballots directly to registered voters,” McDaniel said during an appearance on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends.”
“In LA [Los Angeles] County alone, there are 1.5 million more registered voters than there are adults in the state because California never cleans up their voter rolls,” McDaniel declared.
On Sunday RNC officials announced they’d filed a lawsuit with the National Republican Congressional Committee and the California Republican Party in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California to try and stop the mailed ballots.
“There will be ballots littering the streets,” McDaniel said of the Trump administration’s efforts to prevent mail in ballots. “If you don’t believe me look at what is happening in Nevada … thousands of ballots are littering mailboxes and garbage cans because Clark County did the exact same thing: sent ballots to inactive voters. Not a single state sends ballots to inactive voters. This is frightening and this is why we are suing the governor.”
WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday said violating America’s immigration laws is not reason for deportation.
The California Democrat made the comments at a “Speaker of the House” event in New York while referencing a phone call she had with President Donald Trump. The president later delayed much publicized plans to begin mass deportations after the pair spoke.
“So when I spoke to the president, I said ‘Look, I’m a mom, I have five kids, …nine grandchildren, and children are scared,” Pelosi said. “‘You’re scaring the children of America. Not just those families, but their neighbors and their communities. You’re scaring the children.’”
“I said a violation of status is not a reason for deportation, that’s just not so,” Pelosi continued. “If you have some case you want to make about somebody who’s been accused… that has nothing to do with violation of status, because then we’re talking about over 10 million people who may be subjected to this treatment, and what we need there is comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship.”
“When I saw the president was going to have these raids, it’s so appalling, it’s outside the realm of civilized human behavior, just kicking down doors and splitting up families in addition to the injustices that are happening at the border,” Pelosi added. “We have legislation to go forward to address those needs. But in terms of interior enforcement, what’s the point?”
The president took a great deal of heat from his Republican base after deciding to delay deportations as he works to come to a compromise with Democrats on illegal immigration.
Securing the nation’s border was a key topic of his 2016 presidential election. The matter is expected to remain the focus of his 2020 bid for re-election.
